Hamlet of Brerelawe which Eyton records in C13 can be identified with the ringwork (PRN 01082) near Westbury station. Fields surrounding site on the map of 1840 were called Brierleys, a name which survives locally to the present day . No date can be given for the desertion of the settlement <1>

No trace of settlement survives <2>

The only earthwork within the vicinity of the grid ref is a small ringwork (PRN 01082) at the highest point in the field. There are undulations in the field but any earthworks have probably been ploughed out <3>
